Little Ripples Shortlisted for the 2016 WISE Awards

We’re so excited to announce that Little Ripples is one of the top projects selected for the 2016 WISE Awards! An initiative of the Qatar Foundation, the WISE Awards identifies and promotes the most innovative and effective approaches to global education challenges. That’s Little Ripples! The selected organizations and projects result in a network of “change-leaders” who inform, inspire and motivate others to act. In hearing the announcement from the WISE team, iACT Executive Director Gabriel Stauring responded, “iACT is proud to have our refugee preschool program, Little Ripples, selected as a Finalist for the WISE Awards. Little Ripples serves the most vulnerable within a population traumatized by violence, by empowering refugee women to provide spaces for children to thrive. Being a Finalist gives us a greater platform from which to advocate for our refugee friends.”
